There is no single "standard" active filter circuit. Without getting into how many poles the filter is, there are

functions: high pass, low pass, bandpass, notch...
basic topologies: Butterworth, Cauer, Chebyshev (lotsa spellings for that one), Bessel...
implementations: Sallen-Key, state-variable, bi-quadratic, gryators...

and on and on. Wiki has a good starting page, but it goes on and on, and it does assume that you can handle some math. This is a large topic in EE.
